    Nikon 60mm macro/ This is the new one

    Just got my 60mm macro from David . Thanks Bud came at 9:15 DHL works like a charm. Just heading out for a road trip but wanted to at least try it before getting serious with it. It handles very nice and it fits in my bag. i have a real issue with getting big again. I am spoiled and just flat out lazy to carry gear like I did in my past . The M8 is no help here it just spoiled me rotten. Good new is the d300 is just a tad taller. The other good news is i can get a D300 and 5 lenses in my J803 bag which I use for my Leica system. if I have to go bigger than this than i am going to quit photography and go sell used cars. I am almost dead serious. LOL

    I hate weight and bulk and i carefully chose this Nikon system to keep it light and not bulky. But sitting in the bag right now is the 17-35 , Zeiss 50, Zeiss 85 1.4, 24 shift , 180mm and SB 800. Now squeezing in the 60 macro maybe a challenge than I have a complete Leica m8 to back me up for this trip and use also. One body, 12,18,21,28,35 and 75 cron . Frankly besides one more body that is all I have left. I do have a 50 pre asph hopefully at Camera West waiting for me though.


    Anyway I am rambling . Images

    Okay here is a funny one.I have my lights and my stands bag so this leaves me no bag for cloths. So I put a paper bag in my lights stand and squeeze some cloths in there and when I get to the hotel I will put my cloths in the paper bag and check in. Freaking airline restrictions on 2 bags leaves me no choice unless i pay for extra baggage. Now talk about feeling like a bag lady. LOL

    clothes are so analog. Just digitize your pants and you're good to go...
